    Default dvd widescreen to full

    I use dvd decrypter to ripp the dvd's, then use dvd2zone to burn. Can anyone tell me how to convert the original from widescreen to fullscreen, or, custom size as in tmpeg?

    For what possible reason could you want to do that for.

    If you want full screen then just hit the zoom button on your DVD remote.

    Or go into your general setup by pressing the menu button and then under the viewing it might be set to letterbox instead of full. Simply change it there cause if you press the zoom button like other dvds either the button stays there or pixilation occurs...

    You can't make a widescreen DVD into full screen by changing the DVD player setup, unless the DVD has been flagged for pan and scan.

    Very few DVD's (I have only seen one) has this functionality.

    some dvds are set up as letterbox which shows you black on top and bottom. I had this but when i went into it i could set it to full screen so all my movies now play in full screen

    They would be non anamophic and require a zoom mode on a widescreen TV to get the right aspect ratio. They would looked squeeze otherwise.

    You would probably still get a border on a 4:3 TV with 1:85:1 films and 2.35:1 films.

    Do you mean the on screen display stays on the screen?
    As for the pixelation effect, this is because the DVD player is cheap and is due to the way it resizes the movie.
    Cheap DVD players use less sophisticated circuitry, the resizing is crap in these players.
    I have had 2 cheapo players that had this problem, but the same DVD looks great without any pixelation when using my more expensive and better quality Toshiba DVD player.

    I tested a £38 ebench DVD player and had 3x zoom.

    There was no pixellation and it actually uses the same chipset as Toshiba, Samsung and Arcam DVD Players.

    That maybe, but my point was that the cause of the pixelation is the resizing method the DVD player is using not whether a cheapo DVD player is capable of producing a zoomed picture without pixelation or not.

    ok people - let me clarify this. I don't want to change my dvd player, I want to burn the dvd in fullscreen instead of widescreen.

    Have you checked out the (repaired) link that I provided in my initial response to your post?

    yes I checked out the link. I am new at this and it is a little hard to follow. Once I rip the dvd, it creates the vob files. Do I compress files before trying tmpeg, or change the vob to mpeg and convert with tmpeg. It's confusing because I don't use same conversion software as mentioned in link. The software I use is very simple and actually easier than converting divx to mpeg for cd burning. I have only had my dvd burner for 2 weeks and am still learning, thanks to the help I find online.
